I have been stressing about halloween costumes for my kids for the past few weeks. We actually were even given two great costumes this year that I was counting on using, but...they both are just a little too small for Ella and a little too big for Ezra =(
I even toyed with the idea of just skipping costumes altogether (I know...gasp!) but Grey Stone does a HUGE fall festival event...and, well...I admit, I don't want my kids to be the only ones there not in costume.
Now I consider myself a creative person and I love to sew...so it would seem that costumes would be no big deal for me. Negative. I hate it! I am way too cheap (ahem...frugal!) and refuse to spend money on an already made one and I just don't like thinking up costume ideas.
After procrastinating for several weeks, I finally had a breakthrough today!
My costume breakthrough consisted of :
1) Coming up with a doable idea...whew, that was a biggie!
2) Making it out to the store today and collecting everything I needed
now if only I can actually make it all come together!
Am I the only mom to feel this "costume-anxiety?"
